Thank you all for the kind replies to the wild dog pic I posted a while ago. I am now finally shooting with the D70, and what a pleasure it is.
I recently spent a day at the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve near Rustenburg in South Africa. This little guy was kind enough to pose for me. Shooting in RAW format with the D70 is great. There is so much detail that you can crop to the interesting parts.


Let's see if a large image loads.

I am not sure how large a pic I can load on the site. I see that a lot of photos exceed the 250400 bytes suggested. What is the guideline? I assume 72dpi is OK for web use, but how large can I go?



.......Aaaah.....Found the save for web function!!!!

Live and learn!

Excellent color, sharpness, and composition. Perhaps the facial area could be lightened up (looking from my monitor which hasnot been calibrated)just a touch so the features stand out more. Superior work.

Now I can put away my magnifying glasses !!

Nice one Nils, even though we can sometimes see these animals as pests, it's only because we have invaded their territory and they have to survive by robbing us. They really are handsome creatures, and this shot does this chap justice.

Thank you, Norm. I agree with you regarding the face. I have not played around much with editing my photos. At this stage I am concentrating on figuring out what this camera can do. Quite a learning curve.:shock:
